I love reading History. I find it more fascinating than most fiction. Although a registered Independent voter, my political and social views lean to a conservative outlook. Both major political parties are, in my opinion, totally bankrupt in ideals and intent. Both pull too far in their respective direction, and all have sold themselves to the highest bidders. A New England Yankee, I have great admiration for the founders of our nation. The early ones, Washington, Adams Jefferson and others put their lives on the line. Add Madison, Franklin and more. We are most fortunate that our Revolution/Rebellion was organized and led by educated, enlightened men (not to forget Abigail and some other uncelebrated women) who thought far into the future, and it took other men like Jackson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR to maintain the hopes & dreams of millions. France's Revolution started well, but was taken over by lesser men, and fell into the Reign of Terror, and the Guillotine. Russia suffered Lenin & Trotsky. We were luckier! I cannot get through the day without reading the Comics. Regular comics first, then the Political 'toons. Unemployed for 35 months, I finally landed a good position with a good company! However, now I have less time to comment, (a relief to some) and less time to read other comments. Just typing out my gripes & diatribes gives me a feeling of being a little less helpless, and I feel better having said it. Sometimes I goof. I do like reading other comments: occasionally I learn something.

    Yeah, Mike; Wasn’t Reaganomics just great? (For the 1% it sure was!!)

    I don’t agree, Robert. Today, he has a very firm base. He’s yanking the Justice Dept around, get’s the media to print, report whatever he says, has a HUGE following on Social Media, and knows only too well what a cult figure he has become. It’s up to the gerrymandered maps, voter suppresion efforts and voter list purges to sew it all up.

    Don’t agree, Radish. He knows what he is doing, in this case. Stand apart from all the other wanna-bes. Being very shrewd.

    Any person who still votes republican is either very wealthy, or a fool. It has been calculated that the tax cuts during the 8 Bush/Cheney years and trump’s follow-up cuts, which disproportionately favored the ultra-wealthy, is mostly was has brought us to this debt crisis. It wasn’t so much that Congress & presidents spent so much, as tax revenue fell dramatically. And, it is so obvious that the repubs are using this crisis to further erode social services for the poor and middle class. We are nearing the climax of the 1%‘s counter-attack, led by Ronald reagan, against FDR’s New Deal, HST’s Fair Deal and LBJ’s Civil Rights/Health care initiatives. But, what happened in France 1920-1939, and in Germany 1933-1944,….. well,….It can’t happen HERE!

    The Arabs, the Islamics are not only doing nothing good for their own people, but are exasperating the troubles and cruelties of their religion through Islamic “justice” , causing many to flee. Europe is on the road to becoming Muslim.

    Don’t worry, Jack. When the repubs steal* the next round of elections and assume total control, DDT and lots of other chemicals banned by the soon-to-be-closed EPA will be back in use, (Hooray for DuPont!$$$$). (* legalized gerrymandering, voter suppression, voter role purges, etc.)
